SAS suddenly closes in Windows 7 64?

All,

I recently installed--- error free--- SAS 9.3 64-bit on Windows 7 64-bit. Although SAS opens and runs, when the output window is cleared (e.g., by clicking the 'clear window' icon at the top of the screen), the program suddenly closes!

Any advice?

Thanks,

Joe

I'm not being sarcastic, but is there a chance you are clicking the X at the extreme upper right corner of the screen rather then the clear window X.

Thanks for the suggestion--- I've been using SAS for several years. I'm certain that I'm clicking the white, rectangular icon towards the left of the screen; clicking "edit" and "click all" has the same effect.

Note: There is no error message, and no option to save. SAS simply closes.

Thanks,

Joe

That icon is only supposed to bring up an new, additional editor screen.  I suggest you contact tech support.

Just wondering, is there also no information on the error in the Win7 Administrative Tools (like eg the event viewer)?
